Don’t be ar­ro­gant, but don’t down­play your suc­cesses, ei­ther. “If you’ve had a great year, you should talk ex­plic­itly about your ac­com­plish­ments,” But­ler says. “Be very clear about what con­tri­bu­tions you’ve made to the busi­ness unit.” Grote adds that there is no shame in be­ing po­lit­i­cal. “It’s okay to put the best face on what you did,” he says.
